The Uniform Patrol Division is the largest division of the Police Department who are first responders to 911 calls and complaints from citizens to insure public safety. Patrol Division is tasked in enforcing criminal laws, traffic laws, city ordinances, and maintaining public peace and safety. The Uniform Patrol Division operates four 12 hour shifts and is considered to be the “backbone” of the police department.

Uniform patrol operates vehicles equipped with the latest law enforcement technology with digital in-car video cameras and laptop computers. The computers enable officers to receive dispatch calls for service, complete reports while remaining visible, complete warrants checks though GCIC and NCIC, and check vehicle and driver’s license status. The digital in-car cameras are the latest technology with pre-event recording and crash activation.
